Wow- It has been a really long time since I have blogged. I think Dexter was maybe 2. There have been some pretty big changes since then which included adding a baby to the family which will be another post all together.I wanted this post to be mostly about Dexter. I need this blog to be my memory for me.
Dexter is 4 and a half. He really is the sweetest little boy. He is funny, sassy, and caring. He tells me literally everyday that I am pretty and that he likes me. He has a new baby brother that he adores and can always make him laugh. He is sensitive and sure doesn't like it when we get angry with him. He is smart and copies everything. He is a sponge too. He is getting braver as we speak. He is in a movie theater for the first time right now! He eats primarily peanut butter sandwiches. He still loves sweets but we have to keep that in check so that he will eat other foods. He loves apples (thank goodness). He has also been picking out what to wear more now too. Some of his outfits make me laugh but I let him wear it anyway. He still likes to cuddle and I will take that as long as it lasts. He calls the corner of his blankets "pettings" and likes to rub them on his skin. It keeps him comfortable. When he is being particularly cuddly he will rub it on me or Adam or the baby.
He loves pokemon and spider man right now. He was spiderman for Halloween (for the second time) but he loved Halloween this year. He has been potty trained since he was 2 1/2 and changes his underpants as often as he can. :) He did his first Primary program this month. He spoke into the microphone and didn't need any help. His part was " Heavenly Father helps us take care of the earth". He amazes me every day. He will talk your ear off if you let him. He sleeps in his big boy bed pretty well and when we move (in about 2 weeks) we are putting him in a twin bed.He is pretty excited. He is excited for school next year too. He has an amazing memory so I am hoping school is easy for him.
He has the cutest teeth. I am not looking forward to when he loses them. He is 100% boy and has so many bruises and scrapes form all of his adventures. He still thinks tooting, poop, and burping are hilarious. *warning poop story*
He is working on wiping his own bum. I came up to help check and while he was wiping a little piece of toilet got stuck... he looked back and saw it and then bent over, shook his bum at me and said "look I have a ponytail" hahaha. I hope he stays this cute forever!
He is such a blessing. I am so lucky he is mine and I wouldn't trade him for anything. I can't wait to see what our future holds!
